A woman who suffered from Lyme disease and died of complications from the illness has died in Ontario.
Nadia Johnson, 48, was admitted to the hospital in January with symptoms of the illness, including headache and fever.
The Ontario Medical Association said on Wednesday Johnson had died from complications of Lyme disease.
Her husband, Gary Johnson, said Johnson was diagnosed with Lyme disease on Dec. 6, 2017, after a physical examination revealed that her symptoms were similar to those of Lyme.
Johnson’s husband said Johnson died of her own symptoms in February of this year.
He said she had not received any treatment from his medical team and the couple had no knowledge of Lyme or other conditions that could have contributed to her death.
The couple is survived by her four children, ages 11 to 19, and two grandchildren.
